That's the good sign because the the Brady's camp with the case on the fact that those that that's what stride. Dave lesser chance of winning this strictly talking other interpretation of the rules the rules now. The fact that this judge is into the fact that fact that the judges knew that.

Over the last seven months course legal analyst and Sports Illustrated Comcast sports and doing minute. And it real job units a law professor and director of sports and entertainment law institute. Michael thanks for joining us. If you're Tom Brady. How you feeling right now. But they might think robbery feels pretty good right now this was a day where the judge ...
[0:00:46] ... that question but instead on the fundamental questions. Where's the evidence that Tom Brady it's something wrong. And how did the NFL com that the conclusion. That he parks took in some ball deflation scheme which itself. Hadn't been proven. And I think that the judge raised serious questions about the lack of evidence that actually shows that Tom Brady did something wrong. It's like the judge can't get over that and that's great news for Tom Brady because. A discussion about article where it's exodus CPA the NFL and with that potentially because you're so that's a lot of deference of the the players association has some good arguments against that but it better pointed discussions for Tom Brady illegally. Is the core question of what did you do or not do and the judge seems focused on. Michael just for ...
[0:01:56] ... and in deciding what conduct detrimental to leak. That's not good for Tom Brady recognize that policy is worded in a way that you that the case is really weak. The commissioner which seemed to have that authority. But here judge permits saying yeah I get that I get that that favors in elbit. Why against Brady being punished and that sort of the the court questioned the actual question the party said there are going to be discovery meaning their pocket it. Goal or fax or soccer as new information and yet the judge wants to revisit the facts so I I really think. It doesn't mean Tom Brady's gonna wind and I don't want to imply that this is it that had operated as one of the case but I think project is signaling certainly to the NFL. In before you don't settle I got real questions about what your election. You know Michael ditzy like Jeffrey Jessica through a Jim McNally and dungy kind of under the bus but what did you take of the concessions that may be Tom Brady could have conducted himself better with wells. Yeah Lou I think that was the key moment for Tom Brady's case I think Jeffrey Kessler saying yeah yeah no it's all pretty could've been more cooperative. And maybe he should be punished for that a complete inflation punished but I I can read between the lines saying. Let's work at a settlement. Where Tom Brady gets punished maybe a find like Brett Favre was fine Levy could have been more cooperative and turning over material even though as. Brady Serbs. There's no actual ruled that ...
[0:04:10] ... I think that that's a good sort of frame of reference for Tom Brady and that's the judges focusing on this game. Where their reality you know where's the evidence and Tom Brady. Directing people to deflator first of all there is the idea that science argument that the deflation if it occurred. Occurred actually but secondly let's just assume the worst of this soon there what is grand scheme to to play football. Where's the evidence it's robbery participated in it and the judges focused on the game or happen without without making its Tom Brady. So somewhere where Mike Michael we were obviously different and we knew we we're looking at this at the viewpoint of a ...
